Lakhimpur Kheri, Uttar Pradesh

Crossing The Styx

A tiger crosses the 95-km-long, British-era metre gauge rail network which still traverses the Terai forests of Uttar Pradesh. Such linear intrusions contribute to the onslaught on wildlife in more ways than the obvious; habitat loss and fragmentation, increased developmental and tourist pressures, pollution, and much more. Photographed near the abandoned Rehta Station at the Dudhwa National Park, to sight a tiger in Terai is itself a rarity. Shots like these just cannot be planned.
